The overalls caught my eye.  (No pun intended)  The double-runners are too cute!

If this was dated 2011, I would bet that there would be "oh, it's PhotoShopped!".  But, because it IS 2011, I was able to Google poor Buster ... turns out he rollerskated - and then learned how to ice skate ...  The link to the story is below.  Oh yeah - check out the skates on the little girl ... we've come a ways since then ...
